NFL prospects, meet "The Panel''

BY foxsports • March 13, 2012

"The Panel,'' a new series debuting Monday, March 19, on FOX Sports South, showcases current and former NFL players as our panel of experts who analyze some of the top NFL Draft prospects in the Southeast.

In each episode, The Panel, featuring Tim Couch, Dorsey Levens, Ovie Mughelli and Brian Westbrook, sit down with one NFL Draft hopeful to break down how he can best prepare for his future in the league.

Each draftee -- Georgia defensive back Brandon Boykin, Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, N.C. State wide receiver T.J. Graham, Georgia Tech receiver Stephen Hill and UAB offensive tackle Matt McCants -- will face The Panel as they utilize game footage to dissect each prospect’s strengths and weaknesses and give exclusive insider assessment of what he can expect as a rookie in the NFL.

The player will have an opportunity to put his accomplishments, both on the field and off, on display and learn something about himself he may not have known.
